The TR4 Story Update
 
Despite the previous update only being two weeks ago the team have made substantial progress with the TR4 restoration project.
 
The team and I are now extremely happy with the amount of progress we have made, we are able to see how much potential the car has. The TR4 been looking so sad of late and was in need of some TLC. The car is taking a lot of work and time, all worth it, and it is certainly starting to pay of,  we are at the best part of any car restoration - when the donor starts to look like a car again.
 
In the last few weeks the bumpers and hood arrived from US, which has allowed us to progress, this meant that all of the electrical components could be connected and other parts could go back onto the car. The new chrome bumpers have been fitted, as well as the grill and lights have also been fitted, and the brakes and suspension. The exterior is all most finished, the only major yet to be fitted yet are the brand new chrome wheels. 
 
The interior parts which arrived in the last few days were the carpets, which will be fitted very soon. The carpets as you expected need to be put in before the seats and centre console, this has slowed progress. All interior components have now arrived and are waiting to be housed.
 
The car when complete is going to sport a full black interior with a custom designed wooden dash board, this will complete the perfect show room finish. 
 
Many hours of time and money have been invested on the TR4, but it's all worth it.
 
The car has not been restored to be sold on, but to driven again and showcased and the occasional Sunday driveThis car was resorted to be driven again
 
We hope to have many more like it in the future, thank you for following the TR4 restoration story, and look out for the car on the roads in and around the Newark and Sherwood area.
